Maxwell and Jill Scott Team For Tour

Possessing more talent that most people are allowed by law, Maxwell and Jill Scott head out for a 20-city run beginning in May.

Heck, we could spend all day talking about the heights these touring partners have achieved and still not cover all the bases. Like Maxwell’s two recent Grammy awards as well as his number No. 1 album BLACKsummer’snight released last year or Scott’s role in the HBO miniseries “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” Scott’s next album – The Light Of The Sun – will be released this summer.
